Penalty is PROMOTIONS.

It's called 'failing up'.

I like the sound of that so much, here it is again - foe Emphasis:

      "...There has never been a Penalty for knowingly mismanaging the Post Office...."

ALL these "Programs" - ALL of them - are recycled old Horseshit ideas which have been tried before (repeatedly), and they always fail. SOME of them failed SPECTACULARLY, too. I would say: "Since the 1970s", but that's only because I was born in the early '50s and don't know what was going on at USPS, before the '70s. There has never been a Penalty for knowingly mismanaging the Post Office.

That's the POINT of all these Good Idea New Programs (or should I say: "systems"??)....to WASTE MONEY and BREAK the Carriers' Will. Turn the job into an unendurable pile of shit - or as much as they can get away with. Our former PMG said as much just before leaving office (with the ubiquitous Salute: "Don't let the door hitcha...."). He said (and I paraphrase): "Sometimes you HAVE TO BREAK the machine, in order to get Congress's attention". Yep - a real Leader Of Men he was.....NOT. But typical, for a PMG.

More money in your pocket now because of manglement's stupid plans but what happens when we run out of funds and Congress steps in? All manglement does is create more manglement positions to dole out more bonuses. This will not stop till we are out of cash. Bad idea after bad idea.

Another poster said that the routes will have to be rebid. So carriers from other stations
will be able to bid on routes anywhere further
screwing this process. Not only will junior carriers
lose routes, they will be sent all over the city. The
savings from this, if any, won’t make up for the continual shifting of carriers. I guess they want to
run the old timers out but the CCA’s will probably
quit once they see there isn’t a future.

The kiss asses will find a way to get the casing jobs by getting under the PM's desk and letting him know they will do a fast job.

There certainly won't be enough Casing jobs for all the Old Dogs in the office. Management will f**k that job up, too...probably assign one Boss for each Carrier and criticize them continuously, for their "work habits" while casing. But it'll just be the smart thing to do...bid themselves all the Casing positions. Lord Hopeth they are all Firm Believers, and have honed their skills in 18 & 8 to a razor's edge, through their long and illustrious careers. And may all the aforementioned Bosses commit ritual Seppuku, in their rage and frustration. :)

i can see older carriers in nevada and arizonia loving the casing carrying idea will be fist fighting for the caseing gig in the summer

how are they going to deem who casses and who carries.not to be a dick but I'm good at both.all the people who shouldn't be doing either will get the casing I'm sure and we would have our start times at noon cause they can barely get one route up in 2 hours never mind 5.

My office is going to the caser system. We are a low casable volume, low income delivery area.. It normally takes me 35-40 minutes to case up and go. So we are
being “re-evaluated” and the routes will have an hour plus added to them
until they free up a few LLV’s. The long and the short of it is that we will be on the streets
9 hours a day on average in the heat of the summer and when winter comes, we will
 be out after dark for a few hours. I look for staggered start times that get pushed back
later to accommodate the plant.

I went on a few websites attempting to see the exact locations of the caser test sites. I don't need a link, but just curious if they are spread out around the country, or maybe in areas where Amazon is delivering their own parcels and thus reducing the p.o.'s volume.

Whatever they decide about the New Generation Delivery Vehicles, it looks like production and replacement is a good few years away. Ugh. I really like the fact that one article pointed out that for personal vehicle use, a recall for all of the fires would have probably already have occurred.

Any horror stories about the new "testing" of Carriers/Casers?
